Photographer's Note

Apses are one of the arquitectonic elements that define the Romanic style of churchs and here you have one, view from outside. While Gotic temples were built in such a way that all the inside lines drive the eyes of the visitor to the upper part of the construction (where the heaven is supposed to be); Romanic lines drive the look to the apse where there used to be the "Patocrator", a drawn of god. Although I´m not a religious person, I really like to investigate in the minds of Middle age´s people, and what the built is a way to figure it out. Thanks

PS: The links below are other photos of Romanic art. By the way, if you come to here, try to visit Palencia, it´s not the most famous part of the country but it´s worthy. Thanks.
